    How can I tell what class an SD card is? I have two 8GB cards that I can use to replace the 4GB that came with the Ally, but if they're different classes, I want to put the faster one in my phone (and the wife can have the other in her Ally -- which, BTW, is also running Velocity v0.3 and drellisdee's turbo JIT+OC, and both of our phones are stable at 787 :D Trident and Drellisdee are my heroes!).

    So, how do I check 'em?

    Check out an app called "SD Card Speed Tester" on the Android Market.

    Pny cards have a number on the front that is circled. That is the cards class. Unsure if sandisk lists class numbers on their cards.

    Pretty much just look at the card. If there's a 2,4,6,8 circled, that's most likely the class. If there's no circled number, 90% chance its a 2. The only reason they wouldn't put it on there is if its not good lol

    For what its worth, Im using a 16 GB class 2 sd card. I was worried that the apps running from a class 2 card would suffer performance wise, but I cant even see difference.

    If the card didn't cost you like $15-25 bucks per gigabyte than its probably not a class 6.

    This is rapidly becoming far from true.
